When pureeing food, it is important to use enough liquid (juice, milk, cream, broth, etc) to
create a smooth mixture.
Adjust the consistency of the mixture by adding more liquids or soft solids.

Quick Food Chopper Ideas
Bread crumbs: For quick and easy bread crumbs add a couple of pieces of bread,
preferably a couple of days old (but not stale), in your chopping attachment and chop
until fine.
Sweet Biscuit Base: Add digestive biscuits, broken into halves with a little softened
butter. Mix until chopped and combined.
Nuts: For desserts or nut roasts, add the nuts and pulse in quick bursts until crushed.
7. Garlic, Onions, Herbs and Chilli: Use your chopping attachment to chop ingredients
for marinades, dressings and sauces. Use it to chop onions—tear free!
Crushing ice: Place 10 or so ice cubes into the chopping bowl and add 150ml of
water. Pulse your blender until the cubes are crushed. For best results, let the ice
cubes defrost slightly for a few minutes before processing.
Zesty Eaton Mess
Any dessert made with crushed meringue needs to be eaten almost immediately,
otherwise the meringue with begin to soften and disintegrate once it is mixed with any
2 - 3 shop bought meringue nests (or homemade if you prefer), crushed.
300ml double cream
200 g strawberries
200g raspberries
1 tbsp lemon Juice
1 tbsp Icing sugar
4 large mint leaves
Zest of 1 lime
Mint leaves to garnish
1. Place 100g of the strawberries and 100g of the raspberries into the mini chopper. Add
the lemon juice and icing sugar and process until smooth. Pass the mixture through a
sieve to remove any pips, adjust the sweetness if required. Chill.
2. Place the cream into a suitable bowl and blend until softly peaking.
3. Place the remainder of the strawberries into the chopper bowl with the mint leaves.
Roughly chop together using by pressing the on button in short pulses.
4. Add the remainder of the raspberries, chopped strawberries and mint, zest and
crushed meringue to the cream and softly fold through.
5. Place into a suitable glass dish or wine glass and drizzle with the fruit sauce. Stir the
sauce through the mixture to create a swirled effect using a skewer.
6. Garnish with some extra mint if desired.
For an alternative dessert, why not keep the meringue nests whole, top with the thick
cream and berries and drizzle with the homemade fruit sauce.
Knickerbocker Glory
Many different flavours of ice-cream, fruit, meringue and jelly can be used to make a
Knickerbocker glory. To serve, always try to use a tall sundae-style glass with a long
handled spoon—perfect for reaching those delicious flavours at the bottom.
Two jellies of your choice (strawberry and orange work well).
1 small tin of fruit cocktail or peaches in fruit juice
1 punnet of fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries or blueberries)
Ice-cream of your choice
200ml of double cream
Sundae toppings (these can be any of the following or a combination of your favourite)
• Grated chocolate, fruit sauce, chopped nuts, fudge/chocolate chips,fresh
berries,sugar sprinkles etc)
1. Make up the jelly in advance. This can be done the day before. To make two
Knickerbocker glories, only half of each jelly is required, so ideally just use half a
packet of each. For an extra fruity flavour add a splash of your favourite fruit juice to
the water when preparing the jellies. Alternatively use the juice from the tinned fruit.
Place the jellies in 2 separate bowls and chill to set.
2. Using the hand blender attachment whip up the double cream in the beaker and set
aside in a refrigerator.
3. Once the jellies have set, cut into chunks and place into the chopping bowl, using
one of the flavours at a time to keep them separate. Process till chopped into small
dice. Repeat with the other flavour.
4. Assemble your Knickerbocker Glory to serve immediately,
5. Place a small amount of the fruit into the bottom of the glass, top with a layer of jelly,
add a couple of scoops of your chosen ice-cream.
6. Repeat again until the dessert is almost at the top of the glass.
7. Pipe or spoon the whipped cream on top and decorate with your preferred toppings.
8. Place the spoon into the side of the glass and serve.
